Keep It Moving

Recently, I watched a couple of students spar and saw one was in the other’s guard. When I called time at the end of the round, they were still in the same position.

Don’t spend too much time in one place during sparring. If you’re both stuck, just give something up and move on.

We have limited time to work on our game, and if you don’t keep it moving, you won’t get as many reps on anything, compared to someone who’s going through several positions in a round.
